Vroengard mk2

Population11.504 billion

CapitalDoru Araeba


The Empire of Vroengard mk2 is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Eragon with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.504 billion Riders are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Doru Araeba. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Rider economy, worth a remarkable 2,313 trillion Crowns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 201,086 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has nearly as many history museums as Riders, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, no one is worried about government policies any more, and the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene. Crime is totally unknown. Vroengard mk2's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Vroengard mk2 is ranked 2,136th in the world and 56th in the Rejected Realms for Lowest Crime Rates, with 130.09 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
